A Catholic priest fresh out of the seminary. A mysterious woman running from a dangerous past. A secret they must protect at all costs.

Obliged to act as the temporary minister of a small town convent, Christiano meets the captivating Angelica who, unknown to him, has been seeking refuge at the convent under the supervision of the abbess. Within a month, sparks ignite between them, but the abbess intervenes, demanding Christiano leave the convent before she reports his conduct to the Monsignor. Little do they know his timely arrival is about to clash with Angelica’s dangerous past. This leads to catastrophic events that shatter the very foundations of the convent and change the lives of all involved.

Forced to flee the abbey, destiny throws them together on a journey they cannot refuse. Pursued by a malevolent alliance intent on capturing Angelica, dead or alive, they face insurmountable danger as they race across Italy to keep her and the secret safe.
The Priest of Santa Maria is the first in the upmarket thriller trilogy by Alexandra Kleanthous. If you like fast-paced action and a gripping tale, you’ll love this original and exciting debut novel filled with page-turning suspense and a little romance thrown in for good measure.
